Both Are: A Compound Love Story
A group exhibition inspired by J.D. Salinger’s short stories, Franny and Zooey.
Curated by Slidelucker Serrah Russell
For Both Are: A Compound Love Story, seven artists were invited to create new work responding to J.D. Salinger’s short stories, Franny and Zooey. Using video, photography, collage, and drawing, the works are varied and distinct while each artist finds inspiration in characters, themes and phrases within the dense work. The works speak to both the person and direction of the artist, as these unique sources of inspiration combine and collide to tell their own story.
